Things to do in Koh Samui
Koh Samui beaches are known for their beauty and also as a place to party, especially Chaweng and Lamai, the most popular and busiest beaches on the island. For something a little mellower, consider the shallow waters of Mae Nam Beach, or Bophut Beach, a common launch point for diving tours that’s quieter than the big beach but with plenty of places to eat and drink. There’s also Big Buddha Beach, which gets its name from the 15-metre tall Buddha statue nearby. Big Buddha sits before the Big Buddha Temple, one of many Buddhist temples on the island. As popular as it may be, the most famous temple on the island is actually Wat Khunaram Ko Samui, which has on display the mummified remains of one of its monks.
